use this for propaganda re separate. just as recently as last night a senior administration official saying the north has never been more isolated with regard to the nuclear issue. this may be a way for the north to save some face, to find of reduce some tension, and of course, these are nexts that the north itself has created but a way for it to kind of restart relations. and that really remains to be seen. whether or not this is something that will expand beyond what happened with the journalists and will chart a new way to go forward with these six-party talks. that's the real issue. whether or not this will have some lasting effect beyond the plight of these journalists. >> can we assumeetween presiden clinton and kim jong-il went beyond these twowo journalists? to things like resetting diplomacy? >> look, these guys met for more than an hour. then they had this dinner that lasted a couple of hours. it would be highly unusual for that issue not to come up. and the administration officials would expect president clinton to convey his own views about denuclearization. howe

. they're starting to bury us with the taxes, the insurance, what would happen to our credit if we short sale that one and give us some breathing room? >> jean, what can they do? sound like they're really in over their heads. >> here's what people often don't understand about the short sale. if you want to short sell your property you actually need your lender to buy it -- >> what is a short sale? >> a short sale is when you sell your property for less than you owe on the mortgage. and you agree to that and the bank agrees to that. and because you've been making your payments, stephanie, chances are your bank is not going to agree to that. and so what i would do is leave the property on the market at this point. look for other areas in your budget where, perhaps, you could find some additional relief. and think about how much of a loss you could actually take on that property in order to just get yourself out and give yourself a clean start. >> all right. good luck, stephanie. >> thank you. >> okay. now let's go to rhode island. we're going to go to skype, and we've got carrie with
